Get Dotty with Ciaté

by - April 30, 2018

 
I tend to keep my manicures very neutral and natural, so a subtle pop of colour is always welcomed. So, I'm constantly on the lookout for extra nail polishes to spice up my everyday look, and I think I've found the perfect one. Today we are talking about the Ciate London Paint Pot in Comic Strip.

The name totally sums up what this polish is all about. The multicoloured (pastels and bright bolds) hexagonal shapes remind me of pop art and the illustrations within comic books, taking a modern twist on the classic glitter nail. Not to mention, these colours are perfect for a themed mani! Comic Strip enhances every manicure, complimenting almost every nail polish colour, allowing it to be transitioned across all seasons from Summer to Winter. 


As this is my first ever nail polish from Ciate London, it's hard to test its wear against others, however, like all sparse glitter nail polishes it can take up to 2-3 coats for a semi-opaque finish (depending on what you want). Yet, I am glad to say that each coat glides on effortlessly due to the wide and flat brush that is iconic to Ciate London nail polishes (this should be expected from the higher price point you are paying). This does allow for enough glitter to be picked up by the brush, giving unique results from each swipe.

What I love most about this polish is the different finishes and looks you can create with the same matte glitter. My personal favourite way is to apply it as an accent to my ring finger, which definitely packs a punch. After testing it multiple times, the polish lasts around a week on average, with a generous coating of top coat - not bad for a glitter!

Have you tried Ciate London nail polishes?

  13. I would love to use nail polish more often but as a gardener it's a waste of tome, it gets chipped immediately! This looks so pretty though, percet for a party 😊
